Welcome to my mutterings to life in general and all that Jazz!

So this is my attempt at the wonderful world of blogging!

It will contain my ramblings of life, hopes, dreams and a smattering of what makes me smile!

So grab a cupcake, (hopefully one with zillions of buttercream!) a cup of tea and sit back and take yourself out from this busy life for a few moments................................

Blue spots - Just for a change!

Me and My Shadow
Magpie Monday!
Please join in!

Now I have to confess that I love all things spotty and dotty!  Especially Pink! which seems to adorn all manner of things in my craft room, trays, cups, table covers............ need I go on.

So I was a bit lapse last week with regard to Magpie Monday due to the children being off and having a busy time with customer orders etc so I was very pleasantly surprised when I managed to find time to visit the local car boot on Saturday morning.

I went to see the lovely man that sells fresh vegetables, at low prices but high quality.  As I turned around with my over sized cauliflowers and bags bulging with cooking apples and rhubarb, I saw this...........

It is actually a white spotted blue roman blind. Its actually a lovely pale blue (the picture does not do it justice) and it is about 4 feet wide by about 10 feet drop.   The fabric is upholstery quality and it is lined.   Sadly it will be cannibalised and the rods given to a friend who makes blinds, the Fabric will be made into pockets for my new range of children's aprons, so as soon as I have made one I will photograph it and post for you all to see, it will not be this week sadly as I have rather a lot of other things to do first!

My blind cost 50p  which was an absolute bargain, I gave the lady a £1 and said I did not want the change, but she insisted on giving it to me!


  1. A bargain indeed. What beautiful fabric.

    Of course, with your talents you'd see the potential in it whereas I'd probably buy it beacuse it was pretty and then not know what to do with it!

    Thanks for linking up x

  2. Lovely and so clever of you to work out the uses for it too.
    I like dots and spots too.
    My finds are at http://gigglingatitall.blogspot.com

  3. fab bargain im also a fan of anything spotty just not come across any spotty bargains as yet ;)

  4. I love a polkadot, as do you I see (blog background!). Bargain and I look forward to seeing the end result of the revamp. :)

  5. oooh! we need a new blind for the upstairs toilet, that would be perfect. What a bargain xx Look forward to seeing what you do with it .
